Authorities and Requirements

FM Global

FM Global is not just an insurance company. It also has a research component. From this research, FM Global publishes its "Approval Guide," which lists components and methods that are acceptable for application and use in facilities that FM Global insures. The FM Global Approval Guide is recognized as an industry standard in approving equipment and methods of construction for fire safety in all types of facilities, even if FM Global doesn't insure them.

In addition, FM Global publishes "FM Data Sheets," which outline specifications to be applied to FM Global-insured structures in the interest of fire protection and property conservation. These sheets dictate how to design features in the buildings they insure and are universally viewed as acceptable methods for a large portion of the industrial, commercial, and institutional buildings that exist.

Other organizations in the insurance industry also publish similar documents, but not to the extent and depth of the FM Global data sheets. The insurance company that insures the facility should always be consulted for specific requirements.
